Ok here we go… and go.. and go… and we are celebrating our Year 4.
Where in years gone by we have found our way to the fabulous Wildpig Comics, this year there just wasn’t a lot to discuss when it came to the comic universes.. so we decided to have an episode where we create our own.
So we got Bill Ellis, manager of Wildpig and longtime friend of the show and Jay Sandlin, new friend of the show and writer of Outbreak Mutiny, as well as a regular contributor to Buzzfeed! I’m also leaving a link here to this article, but you might want to wait til the end of the episode to click on it… trust us.
Let me (Hatton here) take a quick moment to say a thank you to every one of you that has listened over the years and has gotten us here. It is because of you folks that we do it and thanks for being there. As we crest our fourth year and our next episode is that big ol’ triple digit, it is stereotypical, but totally true, that without you, there would be no us. So thanks everyone.
Enough prattling – let’s get on with the show.
Ok, here we go!
Look, we all have blindspots. Maybe it’s that you really weren’t a fan of Star Wars. Maybe it’s that you think the ending of Lost is really good. These are things that sometimes you hold as a badge that you have not done something the rest of the world has.. but other times, you are aware it is a blip that you missed and you just avoid conversations around it.
So Rob & Hatton are admitting some of the big nerd movies that they’ve missed – and they ask for forgiveness.
They would forgive you ….
…unless it was about that Lost thing.
Ok, here we go!
It’s time again for everybody’s favorite SomethingGimmick! THE WHEEL OF THINGS!
The last time, the Somethings talked on about Dragonlance. This time it’s a contest episode.
We’ve done movie posters before, but what about that one little sentence that tries to drag you into the flick?
He was a flint. She was a steel. Sparks fly when they meet.
So can we figure out movies based on those short snippits? Oh, there’s only one way to find out!
Ok, here we go!
♫ Here we are… born to cast pods… ♫
That’s right, it’s time for one of those shows that was inevitable. It’s Clan Hatton & Clan McRob as we talk about one of the most long-legged, long-lived, fantasy… sci-fi *sigh* series that defined many a’geek.
It’s Highlander time!
So grab your katana and beware the planet Zeist.. the boys are Gathering.
And if you worry about anything.. just realize.. it’s a kind of magic!

Hey thanks for understanding the lateness. LET US NEVER DISCUSS IT AGAIN!
When a movie starts, ‘Two cops with nothing left to lose’ or ‘Two best friends on a mission’ or ‘An unlikely duo of…’
Well, that’s a buddy flick and it’s a sub-genre unto itself. Hell, this show is pretty much a buddy flick turned audio.
So join a hard-nosed cop on a mission, and an unlikely best friend with nothing left to lose as Podcast Rob and Hatton take a cross country trip as fast as they can through the PodscapeVerse. Party time, excellent!
Ok, here we go!

A long time ago… but lesser long ago than it was before, but more recent than it was when it started.. or…
Look, there’s a new Star Wars thing and we talk about it!
Breaking from our usual ‘movie’ tradition – we’re going the super internet geek route and taking a trailer down. What’s to come? What does it reveal? What DOESN’T reveal, and what do we see as the future of the franchise.
That’s all coming up on this week’s SomethingSomethingcast…
Ok, here we go!
Note – This week’s closing song is: Pannonia Allstars Ska Orchestra – Star Wars – Imperial Reggae
♫ In the not too distant future…
On Thursday on Netflix…
The Mads are at it again! This time, they’ve taken the Somethings hostage and before they can be set free they have to review their favorite episodes of the B-Movie-Riffathon of MST3k!
Ok, so there are no Mad Scientists. There’s no SOL. There’s simply an episode of your favorite podcast. That doesn’t mean it isn’t a topic after their own heart, and with the new season coming out Thursday on Netflix, no better time to talk about it!
So repeat to yourself it’s just a show, and you should really just relax… unless you listen to us in your car. Then don’t relax, that would be horrible.
Sometimes someone leaves this world with a mission still in their heart. Whether they were murdered or someone they loved needs vengeance – sometimes… just sometimes.. the spirit of the Crow summons them back to this world and acts as their totem to invincible power. Unless you know magic. Or hurt the crow. Or are satan. Or.. invent another rule.
That’s right – the boys are heading into the dark streets of the world of the gothy macabre and looking at the world of the Crow. We’ve watched all 4 movies (yes.. there are 4 of them) and ranked them from best to worst so that you didn’t have to even consider watching them.
It can’t rain all the time… I mean, it could, but then we would be watching Waterworld.
A long time ago, the Somethings started with Connery… and then they moved on to Lazenby and Moore.. and now they’ve arrived at the next of the Bond Series. Almost caught up, we’re seeing Dalton and Brosnan get their step up at the mic.
From Bond music to Bond girls to Bond geekery, the boys bring their last episode at Studio 3 with a special announcement about our Patreon!
So, prepare for Something… shaken.. not stirred.. and somehow a nuclear engineer.
A long time ago.. on a podcast somewhere in New Jersey…
It’s 2017 – and we are back with our first episode of the year. Working completely against type, we’re talking about a little-known indie film about of young upstart kids making their way in a world where the adults seem out to get them.
That’s right – Star Wars own Rogue One!
If you haven’t seen the movie, you are warned – there is absolutely no part of this episode that isn’t a spoiler.
Welcome to a new year of the Somethings! Ok, here we go!
